Jesus Christ Is Not an Inclusivist

If Christ was an inclusivist who tolerated all views, why did He rebuke the religion teachers of the day?

If Christ was an inclusivist, why then did He say “I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no man can come to the Father but by Me” (John 14:6)…

Sounds quite exclusive to me. Jesus Christ, the only Savior, the one who came to sacrifice Himself to redeem sinners. No other faith or belief system has that kind of redemption. One full of grace and mercy and sacrifice on the part of God. All other world religions say, “you have to labor hard and climb up this mountain to God in order to be forgiven.” Jesus says, “seeing that you cannot do so (due sin), I’ve come down to you. Turn from your sin and believe in Me.” Exclusive and glorious.
